fire40Colorado, July 25, (THAINDIAN NEWS) A big black bear took control of a Toyota Corolla in the Larkspur region of Colorado and was actually seen “driving” the vehicle downhill. The honking that came from the car reportedly disturbed the residents living nearby, who summoned the sheriff’s office immediately, the deputies reporting that it was the personal car of Ralph Story that the black bear had taken for a ride.

Ralph Story is also a resident of the Larkspur region. Police officials who appeared at the spot reported that the bear had entered the car upon smelling a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Police say that the leftovers of the sandwich were left behind inside the car by Ben Story, the 17 year old son of Ralph Story, who normally is the driver of the Toyota Corolla and who had also left it unlocked. Ralph Story was however not very scared at the incident, saying that the invasion of wild animals was a common sight in the area and considering that it was a bear, the animal must have reached the car in his search of food.

Reports suggest that the wild black bear had entered the car upon finding food inside, but after getting trapped could not search his way out and it was then that the bear’s weight shifted the gear to neutral and drove the car downhill. It was one of the neighbor of the Storys who summoned the police after hearing continuous honks and noticing unnatural movements inside the Toyota Corolla. The car was traced by the officials almost 125 feet below the point where it was originally parked. The wild bear is reportedly safe in the woods now where it was quick to run away to as soon as the car door was flung open.
